Leave reality behind and experience the fantastical world of Le Rêve, created by Franco Dragone, at Wynn. French for the dream, Le Rêve, depicts a colorful aquatic wonderland of beautiful and mystifying characters. The experience starts when you first enter the theater and realize that this is not your typical showroom. The circular 1608-seat theater is situated around a pool that is 68-and-a-half-feet in diameter with the furthest seat only 42 feet from the water. The 27-foot-deep pool is kept at a comfortable 89 degrees Fahrenheit.Not only does the in-the-round theater put guests at a unique vantage point, but it also makes them feel like they are part of the show as there is no clear line between the audience and the stage. Gymnasts, aerialists and synchronized swimmers appear from every angle, at times ascending from the water, descending from the high arched ceiling or running through the theater and alongside the audience. If you are seated by an aisle, you never know when you are going to look to your side and see a masked face or other curious character staring right back at you.Le Rêve has a loosely woven storyline that begins with a woman and man dancing and then saying goodnight and goodbye to each other. The man departs the stage, and the woman lies down to rest on a bed. Together the woman and the bed slowly disappear underwater, signifying that her spectacular dream is about to begin.The music changes from soft and mysterious to loud and invigorating as creatures of the night arise from the water and emerge from the aisles and make their way to center stage. Some of them look playful and fun while others have a more malevolent appearance. Aerialists are lowered from the ceiling to join in the revelry, and soon the pool is transformed into a spectacular ring of fire.This is one of the many different scene changes in the show that takes place on a platform in the middle of the pool capable of rising 15 feet above the water. There are three additional lifts that enable performers to enter from backstage without having to get wet. They can disappear and reappear in seconds, creating a constantly changing stage area. Special lighting and water effects and a stimulating soundtrack performed live add to Le Rêve's spectacular production elements.Rain pours from the ceiling, smothering the ring of fire and revealing a bevy of beautiful women and then men who seem to materialize from the water. A tall, rotating, tree-like platform rises from the pool where male gymnasts do incredible poses and dives.Different acts and performers seamlessly flow into each other, resulting in a fast-paced and exciting journey where each scene is more amazing than the next. One of the signature acts in the show is a tango number performed with both synchronized swimmers in the pool and tantalizing tango dancers on the platform. It begins with red high heels and then legs appearing from the water and moving around to the upbeat rhythm of the music. Couples enter the platform creating a multi-level dance extravaganza.During another dance sequence, men with large white billowing fans walk onto the stage while the woman, whose character is dreaming, performs a whimsical dance routine. Beautiful patterns created by colorful lights are displayed on the fans as they seem to float and gracefully move above the stage. The audience also gets a view of the woman dancing on stage as a beautiful silhouette behind the fans.While the performers dazzle the audience on stage, in the air and from the water, what's going on behind the scenes is just as amazing. During the show there are 16 divers who aid performers underwater. There are also 100 hookah regulators in the pool to help performers travel underwater or to assist them when they are performing with their heads submerged for long periods of time.The fast-paced show means quick costume changes for the performers and a lot of running up and down stairs to get in position for their next act. A wardrobe attendant is on hand to operate one of the theater elevators, moving performers over 40 times during one 75-minute show. Eleven dressers are also working behind the scenes to assist the cast of 91 performers with 2,000 costume items.Back on stage, the cast continues to mystify the audience with more incredible performances. A lamppost is lowered with a man wearing pants and a suit jacket effortlessly leaning on it. As the lamppost hangs in mid-air the man balances his body away from the post and horizontal to the ground using only his incredible strength and agility to achieve this feat.Three more dream-like characters are lowered in a wire framed globe where they perform an amazing routine suspended above the water. They weave their way through the open frame and hang off of one another, creating a series of beautiful poses as the globe is lowered and then raised to different heights above the water. It is just one of many awe-inspiring moments in Le Rêve.Champagne CircleGuests who purchase the Champagne Circle seats get an extra special viewing experience. The Champagne Circle seats are the furthest from the stage but at only 42 feet from the water, this is still a spectacular view. Located foot-level in front of the Champagne Circle seats is a screen that shows pre-recorded backstage footage of the show before it starts. Once the lights go dim and the show begins, the screens give guests a live behind-the-scenes view of the performers when they are underwater, backstage or descending from more than 80 feet above the stage. During a synchronized swimming routine when only the performers legs are visible to the audience, the screens allow guests seated in the Champagne Circle to see how the swimmers manage to stay underwater for so long, one of the many intricacies that go into putting on this extravagant show. The Champagne Circle experience also includes complimentary champagne bottle service and a tray of two chocolate covered strawberries and six savory chocolate truffles.-- By Caroline Fontein

Renowned Chef Gordon Ramsay has opened his second Las Vegas restaurant, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, at Caesars Palace. The contemporary yet casual restaurant and bar serves lunch and dinner in an English pub-style setting.The lunch menu, served from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily, features pub snacks and small plates, soups, burgers, sandwiches and more. Try the mac 'n' cheese,' made with black truffles, gruyère, English cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, topped with duck fat croutons.The pub menu is served nightly from 3 p.m. - close and features elevated British pub food in a comfortable and lively setting showing sporting events from across the world. The pub includes 24 beers served on tap plus 63 bottled beers including a selection of large format varieties. With an eye toward dishes that pair well with beer the pub menu includes snacks like Scotch eggs, pork duck rillettes and pub spot - a British version of a slider - as well as main courses of shepherd's pie and the classic Yorkshire Ale Batter fish and chips. The grill section of the restaurant features a relaxed and friendly setting. The menu is served nightly from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m. Start your dinner with a bread basket that includes to-die-for pretzel bread sticks with bacon, served with a cheese spread with a touch of horseradish. Appetizers include a shrimp salad, lamb riblettes and soups. The English ale onion soup is topped with a Welsh rarebit crouton and is an amazing twist on traditional French onion soup.Main dishes include a variety of seafood options. Don't miss the sauteed Scottish salmon, served with bacon-braised cabbage, forest mushrooms, lemon cream and garlic chips. The braised pork belly roll is another menu standout, served with English pea puree, cipollini onion, baby carrots and mustard sauce. Be sure to save room for dessert. British favorites like sticky toffee pudding and spotted dog are on the menu. Other options include a scrumptious butterscotch pot de creme and a peanut butter and jelly cobbler made with blackberry and peanut-oat crumble.On Sundays, the restaurant serves a traditional English Sunday roast prix-fixe menu from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. The quintessential Sunday roast menu highlights chicory and roasted beet salad to start and includes rosemary-roasted prime beef ribeye, seared Scottish salmon, roasted fingerling potatoes, honey-thyme-roasted carrots and parsnips, minted English peas, Yorkshire pudding, red wine marrow sauce and horseradish cream served family style. The meal concludes with berries and cream.A wall made from 175 kegs separates rooms in Gordon Ramsay's Pub & Grill, while artwork pays tribute to the Tower of London, St. Paul's and Big Ben. The centerpiece is a striking bar showcasing beer taps in front of a backdrop inspired by traditional British red telephone booths. The staff uniforms are inspired by the English punk scene and are designed by Allison Leach, who has designed for "Glee" and "Mad Men."Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill features a patio area extending into the casino, a vintage-style lounge, a series of casual dining rooms and a private dining room.

Just as Rome wasn't built in a day, Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip continues to reinvent itself and redefine luxury. Built in 1966, the hotel-casino never falls behind the times and instead raises the bar for what visitors can expect when they travel to Las Vegas. Ultimate party seekers will find plenty of hot nightspots at the resort. Flair bartenders and sexy silhouetted dancers keep the energy going at Shadow bar while guests can literally rock the boat at Cleopatra's Barge by grooving atop a water-soaked barge, flanked by a trademark topless Egyptian goddess statue. Or for something a bit more subdued, unwind with a drink at the Seahorse Lounge while enjoying an impressive aquarium with actual sea horses. Fizz Las Vegas, an elegant lounge and bar designed in coordination with Elton John's partner David Furnish, serves high-end Champagnes complemented by exquisite eats like caviar and charcuterie plates. In spring 2015, Omni Nightclub will debut. It will spans 75,000 total square-feet. The multifaceted, multilevel venue will encompass a seductive ultra lounge, a high-energy main room and mezzanine, as well as a rooftop garden that showcases panoramic views of the Strip.The nightlife at Caesars Palace makes for the perfect after-party to a show by one of the resort's esteemed headliners -- Elton John (returning in 2015), Rod Stewart and Shania Twain (closing Dec. 13, 2014), to name just a few -- at the 4,100-seat Colosseum. The creative and irreverent show "Absinthe" is all the rage in Las Vegas these days. Geared to adults, it features a crazy cast of circus-style performers led by the lewdest ringmaster (aka The Gazillionaire) imaginable. Matt Goss, a British singer/songwriter, performs a mix of Rat Pack-era standards with his own music in The Gossy Room at Cleopatra's Barge. He's backed by a nine-piece band and The Dirty Virgins dancers.  As home to the first celebrity chef in Las Vegas, (Wolfgang Puck at Spago in The Forum Shops at Caesars), the resort remains meticulous in the restaurants it introduces on property, bringing only the finest of dining, such as the Southwestern cuisine of chef Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill and the home-style Italian eats of Rao's. James Beard award-winning chef Michel Richard is at the helm of Central, a casual yet stylish eatery with an indoor dining room, bar and outdoor terrace. The Bacchanal Buffet is a 25,000-square-foot homage to eating created by a team of chefs. The Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill has a grill section featuring fine dishes like whole brick-press Cornish chicken and a pub section serving 36 beers on tap and favorites like shepherd's pie and fish and chips.The Old Homestead Steakhouse is one of several historic New York eateries housed at Caesars Palace. Known for its signature Texas-size slabs of porterhouse, sirloin and filet mignon and whale-size lobster, the restaurant also boasts menu items created especially for Vegas visitors along with an award-winning wine list. Like Old Homestead, Serendipity 3 has made its way out West from the East Coast -- and brought its famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, which is a chilly, frothy blend of 20 different kinds of chocolates, as well. In spring 2015, the London institution Mr Chow, known for its authentic Beijing cuisine and European-style service, and Searsucker, blending cowboy culture with a roadside diner atmosphere, will come to Caesars Palace.For a truly unique dining experience, savor the French cuisine of the charming Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro. Payard features an adjoining chocolate shop with a crepe station and an assortment of chocolate delights. The shop reopens late in the evenings with a dessert tasting menu -- about the next best thing to being fed grapes from the vine.If shopping (rather than chocolate) is the indulgence in need of satisfying, there are more than 160 choices (and even more restaurants) in The Forum Shops at Caesars, as well as a hallway of 15 high-end stores between the casino and pool called the Appian Way Shops.The legendary casino itself suits the tastes of high-rollers, celebrities or anyone with cash to spend. The race & sports book is open and inviting with huge screens broadcasting all of the sporting action. In a private enclave off the casino floor is Las Vegas' largest poker room, measuring 14,000 square feet. The non-smoking room includes 29 live tables in the main area. The decor is fit for an art gallery with vintage LeRoy Neiman paintings and iconic images by sports photographer Neil Leifer, including his famous shot of boxer Muhammad Ali's 1965 victory over Sonny Liston (more can be seen in the Neil Leifer Gallery on the casino level of the Augustus Tower). Players at Caesars are treated like champions, with tableside food service and massages.The rooms in Caesars Palace are as spacious and lavish as any palace accommodations should be, with marble bathrooms and several amenities among the top-rate offerings. The Laurel Collection, located in the hotel's 952-room Augustus and 668-room Octavius towers, provides an even more elevated guest experience. In addition to spacious floor plans, pillow-top mattresses, plush linens and an exclusive hotel app (that allows direct communication with concierge), The Laurel Collection boasts a private valet entrance, an exclusive registration desk and a dedicated service staff. Nobu Hospitality Group owned by celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa has opened the boutique Nobu Hotel inside Caesars Palace as well. The luxury property features 181 rooms (including 18 suites) designed to embrace comfortable simplicity and utilize natural materials. Marrying Eastern vigor with Western comfort, guests will enjoy amenities such as a welcome tea service, plush Italian linens and bathrooms with lovely walk-in showers, teak furnishings and ceramic basins. The world's largest Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, spanning 12,775 square feet, is located on the ground floor.Caesars Palace had also added a ballroom facility and five swimming pools to its eight-pool five-acre Garden of the Gods pool complex. Patio seating for Rao's, an award-winning Southern Italian restaurant from New York's East Harlem, overlooks the pools. Rao's also has an indoor patio resembling New York's Jefferson Park with seating that spills over into a common area surrounding a fountain. Located near the convention rooms and a slight distance from any gaming, the common area provides the ideal atmosphere for hotel guests to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee or read the newspaper.Located just off the lobby, the Augustus Tower features French chef Guy Savoy's restaurant, two VIP lounges with private check-in for high-end players, three indoor wedding chapels, the relaxing Qua Baths & Spa and boisterous salon by celebrity stylist Michael Boychuck, all hold court here.From the moment guests pass the majestic fountain at the front of Caesars Palace, it is clear that all roads lead to Rome. The hotel has paved a solid legacy as a world-class destination for dining, gambling, shopping, service, entertainment and nightlife.
 

Can I buy a all day pass to the pool if I am not staying there?
